You know those times when it seems like everything you've been working toward is failing miserably? It's as if your feelings seem to be amplified through millions of molecule sized megaphones?

As a full time new mom, and a full time owner of two new businesses, I'm still in the learning phase of balancing both parts of myself. Both separately, and together.

This time last week I had ALL the feelings imaginable. (Actually lots of people were feeling that new moon).

I felt like I was a total failure, headed down a steep path to ALL the failure in the universe.

I had suddenly come to the end of my ability to hold my sh** together in its gracefully decorated package: Me - showered, dressed, and hustling hard with a baby on my hip and a smile on my face. I didn't even realize how much I'd been feeling deep inside, for so long, until I began exploding words all overy my handsome boyfriend. Like a hero, he calmly listened to me release all of the things that weren't working.

Then, together we created a plan that would work. I needed regular, uninterrupted work hours, and we found a way to carve them out of the schedule for me.

What he and I both know is that feelings don't define reality. How you respond to feelings is what shapes your reality. I had a choice: celebrate misery, or build a logical path to guide my emotional state to peace.

I bought a big family calendar and filled it in. We took action together to create more clarity around what was not working, and what will work as we move forward in this crazy dance called life.

Below is my list of ways you can tell that you're on a break-through path, rather than being stuck in a paralyzing breakdown.

  1. You can see how fear has been holding back a truth that needs to escape for your sanity. You are willing to face that fear head on.

  2. You can trace the winding trail of feelings deep within you, back to love and self protection.

  3. You may hate being in the thick of it, but you know you must make your way through the ugly in order to put yourself in a new place.

  4. You are ready and willing to let go of old habits and “normals.”

  5. You are ready and willing to dive into the unknown.

  6. The list of what’s not working is pouring out of you like the influenza.

  7. You find yourself craving with your whole being to write the opposing list of what it is you need, and what will work.

  8. You genuinely want to free yourself more than you want to wake up each day living the comfortable norm that you’re drowning in.

  9. You already started writing those lists, so you can carve out the time and energy you need moving forward.

  10. You come back to your breath, love, and forgiveness. Letting go of hurt and anger, so the past can transform into the energy of strength, and the future can unfold from the embodiment of purity and grace.
